Cheepro respects the intellectual property rights of others and wishes to offer Services that contain no content that violates those rights. Our Terms of Service require that information posted by users be accurate, lawful and not in violation of the rights of third parties. Cheepro has adopted this Copyright & IP Infringement Policy to explain to Cheepro users and third parties their rights and responsibilities regarding copyright of the user content uploaded through our Services and the actions that Cheepro will take in response to copyright complaints.
It is Cheepro’s policy, in appropriate circumstances and at our discretion, to disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who repeatedly infringe or are repeatedly charged with infringing the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others.
The process outlined in this Policy is designed to be consistent with the process suggested by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Remember that your use of Cheepro’s Services is at all times subject to the Terms of Service, which incorporate this Copyright & IP Infringement Policy. Any terms we use in this Policy without defining them have the definitions given to them in the Terms of Service.
Cheepro wants to ensure that we are doing the right thing when we are asked to remove content from our Services. Only copyright owners (or owners of other IP, as defined below) can report a suspected infringement to Cheepro. Therefore, you cannot report a suspected infringement if you are not the copyright or IP owner (or an authorized representative). Please be aware that you may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by Cheepro or our users, if you knowingly materially misrepresent that content published through the Services is infringing your copyright or other IP. When in doubt, you should consult an attorney. If you do conclude that your copyrights or other IP rights are being infringed, you can follow the process outlined in this policy to report it to us. We also strongly encourage you to contact the user directly.
If you believe that materials or content residing on or accessible through the Services infringe your copyright (or the copyright of someone on whose behalf you are authorized to act), please send a notice of copyright infringement (a “Notice”) containing the following information to Cheepro’s team for receipt of Notices (Cheepro’s contact details are listed below):
Your Notice with all items completed will need to be delivered to Cheepro’s team at the following address: Cheepro Limited, 14/F China Hong Kong Tower, 8 Hennessy Road, Wanchai, Hong Kong
Once a proper written Notice is received, Cheepro will proceed to:
Please note that a copy of the Notice (including your personal information) may be provided to the user who allegedly provided the infringing content. Please also note that Cheepro acts as a conduit between our users and the various Supported Platforms. In several instances, the content published via Cheepro will not be in Cheepro’s custody or control. If the alleged infringing content falls into that category, Cheepro will inform you in writing, and will encourage you to contact the Supported Platform(s) on which such content has been published. In the case of repeated offenses by a specific Cheepro user, Cheepro may ban the user from accessing our Services, at Cheepro’s sole discretion.
If your content has been removed by Cheepro, and you believe that the content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or you believe that you have the authorization to post and use such content from the copyright owner, or the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, you may send Cheepro a counter-notice (“Counter-Notice”) to the address of the Cheepro team listed above. Your Counter-Notice must contain the following information:
Once a proper Counter-Notice is received, Cheepro may, in our sole discretion, send a copy of the Counter-Notice to the original complaining party informing them that Cheepro may replace the removed content (or restore access to it) 10 business days after our team received the Counter-Notice, or any time thereafter. At Cheepro’s discretion, the removed content may be replaced (or access to it restored) 10 business days after receipt of the Counter-Notice, or any time thereafter, unless our team first receives notice that a court action has been filed to restrain the user from engaging in infringing activity related to the removed or disabled content.
If you believe that some other IP right of yours (or of someone on whose behalf you are authorized to act) is being infringed by a user, please provide a Notice to Cheepro’s team (as specified above) with the following information:
Upon receipt of the notice as described above, Cheepro will seek to confirm the existence of the IP on our Services, notify the user who posted the content including the IP, and take whatever action, in its sole discretion, we deem appropriate, including temporary or permanent removal of the IP from our Services.
